Just the Tip Tuesday (12/02/08)

2 Dec

I have a confession to make.  One that will probably knock you right off your feet.  Perhaps you should sit down and move any sharp objects, or hot cups of liquids out of your way.  Are you ready?  Here it comes.  (That’s what she said)

I am an anglophile and love all things British.  I KNOW!  You must be stunned.  I will not bore you with they why or the details on every little thing I love about the Brits.  Instead, we will focus on the hot men I imagine myself having.  Just wrap one of those hotties in a bold striped suit with a double Windsor knot, and have him sweet talk me with that glorious accent-my knees will turn to butter.  I want one with a mamby pamby name like Cecil, or Rafe, or Lord Something-er-Other, or Duke of Devonshire.  Something along those lines.

You may have guessed that today’s JTTT falls right along these lines.  Ladies and gents who like gents, may I present to you Rupert Penry-Jones:


Go ahead, mock away.  I don’t care.  He is fine and hot.  He can make me swoon as Adam Carter in the BBC series Spooks (or MI-5 as it’s called here).  Or, for those of you that prefer period pieces, you can enjoy him all dressed up in the costume of the era in Persuasion

Come on!!  Blue eyes, hot British accent!  What’s not to love??

    You watch the BBC? And here all I thought you watched was the Lifetime Movie Network and porn.

    All that aside, he is a little hottie. His crumpets would go nicely with my tea.

    “Look kids Big Ben. Parliament.”

    I watch the BBC and porn-I’ve even seen some British porn, it’s 10 times hotter because the guys have accents.

    I’d like to see his Big Ben. -CS

    I take one of him also for christmas. Naked.


    Tis the season, and he might like to jingle your bells. -CS

    Give me a break.

    You really mean that you’d want eye-candy for Christmas?

    And here I thought you were all about the personality..

    *sigh* I’m disappointed in you…

    Ha! That’s a good one! I’d never date someone for their personality! I prefer the pretty wrapping they come in. -CS

    Visiting from Cameron’s Get the Stink Off.
    I’m a total Anglophile too! And yeah, he’s hot! hot! hot! Nice choice for your celebrity boyfriend!


    He is hot like fire, and he’s just one of many secret boyfriends of mine. -CS

    Brit men are hot as hell. There is nothing in the world like hearing your named moaned in that accent. I highly recommend it 😉

    That’s one of the things on my list of things to do before I die. -CS

    How about guys with British names who aren’t hot and have no accent? I hear they’re even better.

    British names or girl’s names? -CS

    I gotta say, R P-J looks a little confuzed in that picture….like he can’t figure out if next move is to go home to wifey & kidz or or pick up on likes of americano babes cuz he just likes hearing his named moaned in an accent.???

    I’m pretty sure that he’ll lean towards the former. -CS

    He is lovely, but I kinda like that you can be more normal looking and still famous in you are a Brit. Like Steve Coogan. I’m totally an anglophile, too. Are you watching Skins?

    Steve Coogan is so funny!

    No, I’m not watching it, but I’m tempted to start. I’ve heard great things about the show. -CS

    He’s no Clive Owen, but he’ll do in a pinch.

    As in, we all want him to pinch us. In interesting places.

    What are your thoughts on Ioan Gruffudd? If you’ve ever heard his real voice, not his Hollywood movie voice, he has an adorable soft Welsh accent. Also, he’s hot like fire on the surface of the sun.

    Clive Owen is indeed spicy hot also.

    I f’ing love Ioan. I randomly flipped the channel to Horatio Hornblower one day and fell madly in love with him. You may not know this, but he wants me. -CS

    I have blue eyes and a British accent! Worship ME! Oh wait…I don’t have a penis though, does that matter? 🙂

    Yeah, that’s not going to work for me. -CS

    Skins – Gossip Girl for grown ups 😉

    Spooks/MI-5 is one of the best exports, not showing at the moment, but makes 24 look rather twee…

    Guv’ner – I’m not even going to answer that one 😉

    When you describe Skins that way, how could I not watch it??

    I got hooked on MI-5 and immediately put all the episodes in my Netflix queue. LOVE IT!

    I’ll let you and the Guv work it all out… -CS

    Pretty to look at, but he sucked in Persuasion…

    You can just watch it w/o the sound. Then you won’t have to worry about him sucking. -CS

  13. icediva December 2, 2008 at 6:21 pm #

    He make me tingle. Sweet!
    A new member of my harem has just arrived!

    Back off, sister. He is MINE! -CS

  14. thatgirl December 2, 2008 at 8:47 pm #

    mmmm yeah, he’s kinda cute! namby pamby name or not

    Sometimes that’s not so bad. -CS

  15. loosecannon9 December 2, 2008 at 11:06 pm #

    We miss you.

    But I’m back! You don’t have to miss me anymore. -CS

    nice nice, I don’t mind him at all

    I had to delete the old blog. But I have a new one.


    I can’t believe you had to delete the old one!! That’s a tragedy. What’s that all about?? -CS

  17. sista #2 December 3, 2008 at 4:01 pm #

    Don’t know who he is and don’t care. He is a cutie. Wrap a bow around him naked……NOW.


    What color bow would you like? -CS

  18. Wontletlifedefineme / Marjolein December 4, 2008 at 8:20 am #

    He’s in Persuasion? The only Jane Austen book adaptation I haven’t yet seen! … and wow, he’s gorgeous!

    Well, now you have go out and see it. -CS

    I’m going to have to start arranging my HBM (that’s hot British Men) alphabetically so I can keep them straight. TOTALLY adding this yummy fella right there under P!
    Cheers from one Anglophile to another!

    P.S. Are you digging the Ralph Fiennes? He started the whole damn thing for me.

    Maybe you should use the dewey decimal system like they do in libraries. That would allow you to find them faster.

    Ralph doesn’t do it for me. I think his brother, Joseph, is far hotter. -CS

    He makes me long for some nice British imports. Yes, very nice indeed.

    I’d like to see his British import. -CS

    “I want one with a mamby pamby name like Cecil, or Rafe, or Lord Something-er-Other, or Duke of Devonshire. Something along those lines.”

    That boy could “clot my cream” anytime, or duke right on into my devonshire. TWSS.
